3 Tips For WRs To IMPROVE BLOCKING
The first thing WRs can do to improve their blocking is by improving their explosiveness in their legs/hips. One of the most common misconceptions about blocking is that all the strength comes from your upper body and your arms. That is the furthest thing from the truth. The power you are able to generate comes from your legs/base and your hips being able to drive up to get the DB back. So working exercises like power cleans, squats etc. in the gym is more beneficial than doing bench press.

So may WRs run at a DB as fast as they can and the DB will give one shake and blow right past you. Make sure when you approach a DB you are under control. You want to close space with him but for the most part he needs to make the first move, you should react off of him.
Last but not least, you need a strong/wide base when you are blocking as a WR. A lot of WRs will have their feet super close together when they block, and the issue with that is if a DB takes one good shot at you, you are completely knocked off balance. Think about it like this, if you are just standing and someone pushes you when you have a narrow base, you will fall over. Now if someone pushes you and you have a wide base with some knee bend, you won’t fall over. It’s the same concept as blocking!
